Went to the Flea market of exit 7 on the NJ Turnpike so went the extra few miles and checked out Big-A in Hammonton NJ at the Italian fest.
They had their new (purchased used) Technical Park Street Fighter named Chaos there. Sharp looking ride! Will try to post pic of it later...

For this unit of Big-A (Morris’s unit) I did notice 2 staples of the midway missing. The Flying Bobs and the Arm 1001 Nachts. I’m wondering if one of these was traded in for the new Chaos or if one of these was the ride that got rolled onto its side a week or 2 back or both (1 traded-in 1 rolled)?

On the Midway:
1) Technical Park Chaos
2) Century Wheel
3) Vertigo
4) Pharaoh’s Fury
5) Zero Gravity
6) Tilt #2
7) Wisdom Tornado #2
8) Ram Rods (Scooter – Bumper Cars)
9) Scrambler
10) Trapeze (Yo Yo)
11) Eli Wheel
12) Crystal Lil’s Glass house
13) Pan’s Palace of Fun Fun house (Christainni’s)
14) MGR
15) Fun Slide
16) Dizzy Dragon
17) Dinosaurs
18) Dragon Wagon
19) Wind Jammer
20) Hamp-U Combo
21) Puppy Love
22) Hog Wild
23) Inflatable Bounce

I don't those two rides (Bobs/Nights) but according to news reports there was "track" falling from the trailer, so I am guessing that the load was from either the Crazy Mouse, or one of the kiddie coasters, but you know news reports and it may not even have been actual "track".

That being said, hope they didn't trade in the Bob's at least, they have had that quite a while and just recently redid it I believe, or they still have all the equipment and just sent it somewhere else.

Hey Tornado
When does the Italian festival end? AOA's site says tmrw is the last day
so can anyone confirm that?
I might have to head over there
any idea how far it is from staten Island?

Im going to assume this is the unit that is heading up to Saratoga county fair in NY next week?

Tomorrow is indeed the last day. It's approximately a 2 hour 20 minute ride from Staten Island.

I would assume yes as the other Unit is in Ohio for Ohio State Fair. Believe Big-A only runs 2 units now...
